  1. Kind of relief to realise there are as many idiots elsewhere and not only in the Federal Republic , here showing Brisbane. What is wrong with these people?
  2. I could agree to count the players who have been on the field but then minute 90 would see a major walk-in. Or whichever is last minute. Anyhow, we have just created another 63 medals.
  3. Could probably be improved by counting 11 medals for a soccer team. 33 total to award.
  4. To quote Wildalaska when the board had been shut down for a couple of days many many moons ago: " We shall do something else in the meantime , but what ??? "
  5. Sweet lass from NZ, boomboom too mut I think. Or is this Coss????
  6. And again the details tell you more: " Still, there’s no simple black-and-white answer to whether booster shots are needed at this time. One, there is no definitive data." So they use vague data or what? Everybody seems to refer to the reports from Israel, read them yourselves and know more.
  7. Gentlemen, if it is true that the Chinese product does not stop the Delta version the People´s Republic might be facing a true desaster very soon. Which might be the reason that they close down half the country if they find 2 people infected. We wish them well.
  8. I spent considerable time and energy this morning to investigate the origin of the increasing Covid-numbers all over SEA. Preliminary result is that the extremely lovely Pam, current postcode Vientiane, Lao found out that the increase in Lao is due to people crossing the border from Siam all the time. Thai nationals, she insists. Hope this helps.
  9. In celebration of this victory over the pandemic I may respectfully propose to declare August 29th in future the Prayut Chan-o-cha - day. All schools and massage parlors closed and no alcohol to be served in public.
  10. Excellent news. Incubation period for Covid 19 taking about 6 days and average duration of sickness being 3 weeks, the last case of infections in the kingdom would then be today or tomorrow. Infections would sort of be hit by a sudden death, just gone. Did he talk to Trump over the phone ?
  11. People travelling into the kingdom these days must either have a very very good reson or a tendency towards masochism. Apart from the known current obstacles there is always a fair chance for further local restrictions. And on arrival back home in your beloved home country another 14 days might appear on the menue. Coming back from Portugal 3 weeks ago our government had just declared it a high risk country involving 14 days quarantine, vaccinated or not. Travelling by car I would of course have given them a proper story but by plane no good.
  12. Domestic air traffic between BKK and the Phuket sandbox shall exercise a sudden death on July 21st due to something having been declared Red Zone. No good. Unless many people got their vaccination every possible plan remains pure phantasy, which includes all other countries on earth. - Wear a mask - Wash your hands - Avoid people - Do not fart noisily in public
  13. The most lovely Pam, currently based at home in Vientiane, received 2 Sino-something several weeks ago and now thinks she is going to die from Covid any minute. Like with Astra-Zeneca many people now are afraid from touching Sino-something which is a big nonsense. Doing nothing means a much bigger risk than Sino.. or AZ.
  14. I am saying it is far better than nothing if you can´t get the best. The BuBi laboratories are currently buzy developing a vaccine against messing up penalties. The instruction manual comes in English.
  15. Sir, if with utmost respect I may once again clarify what these percentage-numbers could mean: " If a vaccine’s efficacy rate is 80% it doesn’t mean 20 out of every 100 people who get the jab will get a symptomatic case of Covid-19. Instead it means there will be 80% fewer such cases compared with the control group. So if , say, 1% of a control group of 1,000 unvaccinated people develops Covid-19 over a certain number of months, that means 10 people will get ill. With an efficacy rate of 80%, only 2 people should get sick." Just for the record, the BuBi- mantra. Somebody might put it on my gravestone. There is a billion Covid-studies on the market which try to explain all sort of things. Before one looks at the result one should carefully read what the study intends to find out based on what. Again, just for the record. And as we are talking, the following adds some details: " Why did the rate drop? A vaccine efficacy's rate is calculated by comparing the number of COVID-19 infections among trial volunteers who received the vaccine versus the cases among volunteers in the placebo group. In the Brazil trial, 85 participants injected with Sinovac's vaccine developed COVID-19 infections compared to 167 who developed infections in the placebo group, creating an efficacy rate of just above 50%. At Tuesday’s press conference, Palácios said Sinovac’s relatively low efficacy rate of 50% was due to its more rigorous standard for what counts as an infection among trial volunteers. The Butantan Institute said it included six types of cases in its results: asymptomatic, very mild, mild, two levels of moderate, and severe. (The Brazilian authorities stressed that the public should focus on the vaccine's 100% efficacy in protecting against severe cases of COVID-19.) Western vaccine makers generally included only mild, moderate, and severe categories, and companies like Pfizer are doing additional studies to see if the vaccine will prevent asymptomatic cases. " ( Stolen from FORTUNE ) As to the 2 persons getting an infection after Sinovac and one more dying: vaccination does not give 100 protection, see above. Further it would have to be investigated why No 3 died. A businessfriend of mine sadly died from the virus these days and months after 2 shots Biontec. Means what? No easy. Based on these facts(?) the Sino-something should still contribute to protection from this virus. In particular prevent the worst cases.
  16. That Covid19-thing is a never ending tragedy as long as not maybe 80 % of all people received 2 shots or possibly 3. The choice until that has been achieved is either to kill the economy or your people. The Netherlands waived all restrictions 2 weeks ago and now numbers are exploding. The same will happen in the UK after July 19th. Many men seem to think that low numbers mean the virus is dead but it just sits behind the tree and waits for a victim. I do not follow the Thai tourist opening schemes any more, pure phantasies. Instead of buying Chinese submarines the Thai government should buy trainloads of their Sinovac vaccines, it is good enough to block off the worst as long as they cannot get anything better in volume. People who insist on not being vaccinated should be paying for hospital treatment themselves if they catch the Covid. Generally speaking, too many idiots everywhere.
  17. Analysing Cav´s post again there might be a possibility that Cav thinks milk prices go up with crude oil prices because milk is made by Exxon et al. Kind of white diesel.
  18. Try to explain the relation between Biden, the Democrats and high fuel- and milk-prices. ( You won´t be able to, but I am just asking) A gallon in Germany would cost you average 6,72 USD by the way, more in France. The following will show the influence of President Trump´s presence on milk prices https://www.statista.com/statistics/236854/retail-price-of-milk-in-the-united-states/
  19. Sir, nothing could ever stop me from supporting the General´s unselfish efforts to reestablish tourism. I have therefore deeply thought and may now introduce the Bangkok fuckbox scheme. Vaccinated tourists holding proper insurance and cash could spend 5 days quarantine in Nana Hotel with daily excursion over the road into Nanaplaza strictly accompanied by qualified nurses selected by the Thai Tourist authority and the owner of Happy Girls Massage. The quarantine can voluntarily be expanded over a period of another 5 days if the tourist wishes so. What do you think? I am sure it will attract a lot of people, myself included.
  20. I have analysed this breakthrough on the way back to fully functioning tourism. I count 26 official- or semi-official individuals looking at arriving passengers. There should be more in the background, maybe somebody could contact the phuket authorities to verify the real number. They have even chosen one military person although after thorough evaluation seem to have selected a representative of lesser hight not to frighten incoming tourists. Possibly a general moved to inactive post after having been caught in a corruption scandal. ( Personal guessing). One person is spreading his arms to prevent tourists from running into the officials and causing turbulence. Two backup persons point into a certain direction to prevent tourists getting lost in the airport. Unidentified falang with flipflops and without luggage disregards Covid19 minimum distance without being immediately put in quarantine. ( Tall individual right side of tourist 1 in the queue). I apologize in advance if I overlooked anything of significance.
  21. Yes, fully vaccinated, and with what? Mekong whittky? Adding all national forecasts for this year you may arrive at a 2 years production if nothing goes tecnically wrong, and then you have to bring it to Lek and Tip in the woods.
  22. Because of Brexit. India considered as British territory once control has been fully brought back under Viceroy Paul I (Gascoigne), here walking ashore near Bombay naval base. Red bellybag contains nomination docs.
  23. Reading my morning newspaper I came about this: Australia obviously succeeded in keeping the infection rate very low following drastic measures. Further I read that just about 5 % of the population received a vaccination so far. So I thought WTF do these people think where they are living? Lock up Australia for ever to keep the virus out???? The day in future they open the borders that virus will have days of pure joy hitting all the unprotected individuals. Says the hairless oracle-monk and prospects are bad. He ain´t wanking or what do you think?
